The Tankamana is a five star hotel (in my opinion). Imagine yourself in a place inside the forest, in an absolute tranquility, with a rustic ambiance and architecture, and at the same time a place when you enjoy a refined restaurant with an elegant wine list, and a comfortable spacious room with all kinds of pampering things. So, if you are looking for a very romantic place, you find it. I had stayed there in a room that had a king size bed, an ofurô or a jacuzzi baths (I went there three times in different accommodations), an very beautiful bathroom, and a large balcony with a delightful viewpoint of the forest. The hotel common places are incredible. A heated pool surrounded by a green hill. In an other unimaginable place you will see a sauna with a direct connection with a cold natural water of a little lake. A last thing: the breakfast serving works until that last guest goes there. You really can wake up the time you want. In summary amazing in all aspects.

We just came back from our second stay at Tankamana in less than two months. I'm Brazilian and live in Rio, and I find Tankamana maybe the best option for a short break from the city - a super convenient 2-hours drive to find refuge in this gorgeous nature on the tropical Mata Atlantica. After having spent a couple of days end of December at this beautiful chalet in the middle of nature, we needed to come back the minute we checked out. This time we stayed at the chalé Tanka, their best suite/chalét - and were enchanted. A spacious, luxurious chalé with two fireplaces, an immense modern hot tub, an outdoor shower and a huge terrace, totally secluded from all other chalets and facilities. Everything in perfect privacy, yet close to the swimming pool and the main restaurant. We can't forget how welcomed we were by the excellent staff and their dedication to get out of their way to make guests feel at home and taken care of all your needs and wishes. Radamés, the main manager, is always present and ready to do anything to make all guests happy - e he was perfect. Everyone there is really eager to make you happy, like Taís and Maria ( on reception) and Bruno in the restaurant, congrats. We can't forget the absolutely delicious breakfast! Everything you could ask for, with Brazilian delicacies and home made breads and jellies, among so many delicious treats ( like the “pão de queijo” Waffle as well as the mini fruit-pancakes.) Oh, and for the movie lovers, there’s also a private Cinema Room in the main building that you can rent, enjoy some movie classics and munch popcorn. We can't wait to be back.

A perfect escape for the weekend! Great staff, delicious breakfast and excellent room! And if you want more privacy, you have an outstanding room service! If it’s sunny, you can enjoy the pool area and have some drinks and appetizers or have lunch by the pool.

Flawless. Impecable. Great service and very comfortable rooms. The place is very quiet and charming. The food is also great. The room is spacious, with a double hot tube and very comfortable bed. I highly recommend!

My boyfriend and I booked the Chalé Tanka room (the finest room in the hotel) and had very high expectations. I have to say Tankamana exceeded our expectations. The room was absolutely impeccable, beautiful and nicely prepared. Staff went out of their way to make our stay very pleasant, met all our requests and were super flexible with everything. More than just a hotel, Tankamana was an experience. Totally recommend it.

We had great and lovely times in this place. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The room (we stayed in the special chalet with hot tube) was incredibly well organized and beautiful. Congratulations for the quality of the furniture. The price is not so cheap but some moments in this place was priceless.

Once at the place, all the effort getting there is forgotten and you can really enjoy it. Beautiful, peaceful, wonderful food and service. Breakfast is amazing, as is the restaurant (ask for the smoked trout entree).

The hotel is not a "eco resort" as they claim, but it´s a very good place to relax, cool down and to have a peaceful weekend with your mate. The cottages with bath are very cozy and charming. Maybe the "ofuro" cottage would fit better our interests, but it was not available. The sauna and public jacuzzi are amazing spaces. The service is outstanding. I don´t give maximum score because I think the price is much higher than the value. There is certainly less expensive options nearby.

We spent an amazing weekend at the pousada. Complete privacy, great food and amenities, and incredible natural landscapes. Highly recomend for those looking to escape from a busy urban environment and reconnect with nature. The chalet with the japonese tub is worth it! The only issue was the condition of the road up the mountain to the pousada. It has been damaged by heavy rain fall a few years back and I would caution against taking it at night.
